Callum is a truly sensitive and intuitive little soul. I'd spent time with him on a number of occasions before asking to photograph him. One thing that had really caught my eye when I visited Callum in his personal space was a homemade spaceship crafted out of plastic, recyclables and ingenuity that lived-to-be-played-in in his living room. They let me borrow this six foot beast for the shoot and I was able to capture Callum and Tamaio interacting with it.
Musical instruments are favorite props of mine and I incorporate them whenever it suits the child or the concept behind the photograph. A flying V ukelale was all it took for him to let loose and let his inner-rock-star come out. Callum also gave me a soulful rendition with the harmonica that truly stirred something inside of me.
